Last updated on APRIL 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When trying to open a closed period from the Open and Close period form (GLXOCPER) in R12 General Ledger.
Setup -> Open/Close

The Status column has LOV which shows the following 3 statuses for a Closed Period.

1. Closed.
2. Open
3. Permanently Closed

When  'open' is selected the following message is displayed  "Please press the Open Period button and select a closed period to reopen".

In 11i the period is directly opened by selecting Open from the List of Values.
